It’s gives it a nice additional texture when you eat it. Not really any new taste but that means you can sub it in with your favourite steamed rice recipe and it’ll just feel different when eating it. I’d suggest not using more than 3 okra per cup of water so the water composition doesn’t change too much and things can cook properly. I did this in a rice steamer, not pot, which would be a different story.
